The mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) market is already a very competitive one, but with the arrival of Tello, the competition is sure to go up a notch. So how will this new mobile carrier be able to manage? Well, it turns out Tello has plenty up its sleeve, starting with a “No Fees, Whatsoever” branding that just might attract throngs of mobile users eager to sign up for even more affordable wireless plan options.
Earlier today, T-Mobile held an investor call for its Q3 2020 earnings. The numbers show a pretty impressive quarter for the wireless provider as it crossed the 100 million customer mark. This comes after reporting a record-high postpaid net adds that are almost as much as the whole industry.
T-Mobile’s highly teased “Un-carrier” announcement was held via a special webcast earlier today. During the event, the company unveiled their newest Scam Shield app that aims to give customers more control over blocked calls. In addition to blocking callers, T-Mobile will now automatically be blocking calls that it suspects are spam. This basically refers to numbers that have not been “verified” by T-Mobile.
Ever since T-Mobile announced its merger with Sprint, it has been busy migrating the customers of the latter and improving its mid-band spectrum. Now, it is giving Sprint subscribers a better reason to migrate with a new deal.
When T-Mobile announced its merger with Sprint had completed back in April, a lot of its customers were in for a treat. The merger allowed the two networks to improve its networks. In late April, select Sprint customers were able to access the networks of the “New T-Mobile”, allowing them to enjoy their connection. At the same time, T-Mobile was able to rapidly integrate its mid-band spectrum and boost its 5G speeds in several places.
It’s been a little over a month since the merger between Sprint and T-Mobile was made official. But despite this, the two have since been operating as separate entities. However, it looks like we already have an idea on when the two will be combined as one company.
The big four US carriers appear to be in big trouble with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Earlier this week, the government agency announced that it will be fining the four wireless networks a total of over $200 million for selling customer location data.
Starting this Friday, Sprint is launching a new unlimited data plan designed specifically for senior users. Enter the carrier’s new Unlimited 55+ plan, which offers two lines of service that feature unlimited data, minutes of voice calls, and text messaging at a price of $35 per month (that is, if the customer signs up for the Auto Pay service).
